The Coronet Twelve-20 colour-filter model had a variety of designs having different functions available. Functions included variable focus, lime green filter and variable aperture. The one shown above is the colour filter model. It can be described as a pseudo twin lens reflex camera. It isn't a true TLR because the top lens is just part of the viewfinder and does not aid focussing.

The body construction is a metal frame and sides, with the front, back, top and bottom made of cardboard. It has a plastic box internally covering the mechanism. The reflex style brilliant viewfinder give a fairly clear image. The viewfinder is provided with a cover.

This model has a T/I shutter. The time mode is selected by pulling out a tab on the side. Another tab is used to select the lime green filter. There is a lever on the front that can be moved to two positions to change the focus. The two positions are annotated 'Dist' and 'Near'.

A turn-key on the side releases the other side of the camera to load the film. Film advance is by a knob on the side and exposures are counted using a red window which has a swinging metal cover. The camera has a dual purpose spindle drive and will accept both 120 and 620 formats. It does not have a tripod mount.

The camera has been fully tested & is in great working order, plus comes supplied with a roll of expired film, so you're ready to head out & shoot straight away!

Returns accepted within 14 days if there is an issue with the camera.
